2 HOUNDS DESIGN INC.
Alisha Navarro, owner, founder
We often donate products for fundraisers,
we have hosted several programs in which a
percentage of profits from a particular collar
collection were given to groups, and we love
hosting auctions to help raise money for
adoption groups. In the almost 10 years that
we have been in business, we have helped
raise more than $500,000 for adoption
groups all over the world.
Bill Chilian, marketing vice
In March, we launched our Chews Rescue
shelter program. To kick off the campaign, we
created a two-month-long Facebook contest
and made a $10,000 donation to the Richmond Animal League, a shelter that is local to
our Richmond-based company, as well as a
generous product donation.
As part of the campaign, Barkworthies
promised to donate an additional $5 for
each entry received. Overall, we raised an
additional $3,000 for the Richmond Animal
League, above the original $10,000 pledge
